  • A Beautifully Written Début

    Queenie was heartbreaking, raw and funny all in equal measures. Queenie Jenkins, a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman living in London, straddles two cultures and slots neatly into neither. She works at a national newspaper and after a messy break up from her long-term white boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places, including several men who do nothing to help her self-worth. As Queenie lurches from one questionable decision to another, she finds herself searching for the meaning of life. I loved all of the characters in this novel and the writing style, which was very easy to lose myself in. It was great that the author, Candice Carty-Williams, addressed issues of mental health, sexual harassment and abuse and interracial dating, among others, which made this story really stand out for me. I can't wait for the next offering by Candice Carty-Williams! I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Orion Publishing/ Trapeze via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Unforgettable

    Impossible to put down. Believable characters with empathy, warmth and humour. Normal :-) people just making their way to realising that no-one is normal.

  • Absolutely beautiful

    Read this whatever colour you are - this is such a thought provoking read about a woman and her family and friends' lives, love, loss and struggles. I was completely won over by the superb writing - a valuable glimpse into the world of British - Jamaican life.

    Thanks for your feedback!
